We stayed 3 nights at the Synopsis and concluded that this has to be one of the best bargains in Europe. The room we stayed in (#2) was equal to, if not better than, most bedrooms in a regular house. It was spacious, modern, decorated impeccably (Martha Stewart quality). The bath had accessories and amenities we have never seen in...

My fiancee and I spend the weekend here and we were SO happy from the minute we walked it! A gorgeously presented home (really is a home!) awaited us with a magical little garden in the back (where we had a fantastic breakfast!) Elizabeth (the owner/manager) was charming, attentive and really made us feel at home. The rooms were perfect,...

Stayed in hotel for 4 nights over last weekend. What a charming hotel. It is central and within easy walking distance to a lot of sights, but at the same time it is situated in a quiet area, good for evening time. The breakfast was lovely, a good varied choice. The room was very clean, well equipped with a TV,...

Really comfortable room, very helpful accomodating proprietor & staff. Great breakfast! Just around the corner from the Hermitage Museum where you can catch the Canal Bus - a 48 hr ticket to jump on & off of this is a great way to see & get around the city. Couldn't ask for a better base for a city stay.

We stayed here last weekend and found the accommodation and proprietor to be very comfortable and welcoming. The courtyard room was clean and modern, with a large bath tub allowing a long soak! Everything was provided as per a hotel stay but with more of a b&b feel. Elizabeth was welcoming without being intrusive, we would recommend Hotel Synopsis to...

We recently stayed two nights at the Hotel Synopsis in Amsterdam before boarding the Celebrity Constellation.

We liked the Synopsis very much, although with only a few rooms it doesn't really qualify as a hotel - more of a B & B format. Our room was lovely, spacious, ground floor with walk out to patio and a tiny kitchenette. .Bathroom was modern. There is a computer in the room all set up - very nice to...

Stayed one night in a large and well-decorated room. Good location as I didn't want somewhere right in the centre, but that was well within walking distance of pretty much anywhere you wanted to go in Amsterdam. Received a very warm welcome and the owner was friendly and helpful without being intrusive. Enjoyed a good quality breakfast in the privacy...

Staying in Plantage & the East

Neighbourhood Profile
Plantage & the East
The eastern edge of central Amsterdam provides visitors with the chance to imagine the city that Rembrandt called home (and to tour his historic house) while shopping like the thriftiest of locals at Waterlooplein’s massive flea market, or even enjoying a craft beer beside the tallest wooden windmill in The Netherlands. This verdant, serene, and stately part of town is home to Artis Royal Zoo, one of Europe’s oldest (and still best kept) zoos, and Hortus Botanicus, one of the oldest botanical gardens in the world. It's also an ideal setting for the Dutch outpost of St Petersburg’s Hermitage.

“Garden room”
quentincambell, 14 Mar 2016 | Read review
“Any rooms are good, but room 2 has a small separate table in the garden!”
Ivan_BGA, 25 Nov 2014 | Read review
“Only two rooms - front was basement but light and quiet, room 2 probably a better bet as leads on to garden and is away from the road.”

“We had a groundfloor room at the back ( No.2 ) , opening onto the garden - though sadly it was too cold to sit out there ! It was incredibly quiet and peaceful and the bed and bathroom were both superb.”
